A 1960s floorplan completely modernised in Scullin

Set in a central location in the popular suburb of Scullin, you’ll find this stunning, modern home with undeniable street appeal.

8 Harrison Street is just a short stroll from local schools and shops, and a short drive to Canberra’s CBD.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home is set on a 958sqm block, topped off with beautiful landscaping, an abundance of space and a modern design that will have you falling in love.

Ray White Canberra real estate agent Marissa Ellison describes the home as “immaculate”.

“As soon as you arrive, you notice the home is in the most elevated position on the street, and it immediately catches your eye,” Marissa says.

“It’s got a beautifully rendered façade, and the gardens are absolutely gorgeous and really well maintained.

“This home is just perfect for those who enjoy entertaining and having that luxury of modern, day-to-day living.”

The home's open-plan living spaces give it warmth, according to Marissa.


“The tones are nice and neutral, and throughout the home, there are beautiful Tasmanian oak floorboards that have just been polished," she says.

“There’s also plenty of natural light that floods the home.”

The spacious living areas feature ducted heating, evaporative cooling and an in-built gas fireplace.


A modern chef’s kitchen is one of the Scullin property's key selling points.

“I think almost everyone, even if they don’t cook, would enjoy that kitchen,” Marissa says.

“It has a beautiful standalone Smeg gas stove and rangehood, stone benches, plenty of storage and a walk-in pantry.”


Each of the three bedrooms is comfortable and has its own built-in robe.

“The main bedroom is positioned overlooking the front garden and includes a modern ensuite,” Marissa says.

“The two remaining bedrooms are serviced by the main bathroom with a luxurious sunken bathtub.


“To the rear of the home you'll find a separate multipurpose room, functional and self-sufficient for hosting your guests or even running a home business as it includes a kitchenette, bathroom and laundry.”

The backyard is perfect for soaking up the sun on the private deck while offering kids optimal space and a cubby house.


“It’s a really fantastic space. The block itself is just enormous,” Marissa says.

“The backyard is fully fenced, while the parking and outdoor storage areas are great too, with a single carport, double garage, workshop space and great under-house storage.

“You’re also close to the newly-refurbished Scullin shops and the Belconnen town centre."


8 Harrison Street, Scullin, will be auctioned at 5.30pm on Thursday 15 December 2022.
